Petr Cech: 'Arsenal out of Premier League title race'

Marcelo Allende

"Without Sanchez, Arsenal just have good players".

Liverpool substitute Divock Origi could have sealed it with a header against a post, but did provide the added-time cross for Wijnaldum to sidefoot home and settle the home side's nerves.

Supposedly, Ozil has an "unknown illness" while Wenger claimed that dropping Alexis was a tactical decision.

"I wanted to play two players who are strong in the air, because we chose to go more direct".

In perspective, Arsenal have won just once against a top six rival this season - five points from 21 with the season now threatening to sputter and end in the customary disappointment. Sanchez entered the game in the second half and helped improve Arsenal's play over the last 45 minutes, confirming Wenger's blunder.

Sanchez's contract situation gives the Chile global the advantage, as he'll be a free agent at the end of next season.

"The collective response was very strong in the second half".

After conceding two first-half goals, Sanchez was called upon after the break but he cut a frustrated figure throughout and more light has since been shed on Wenger's decision to drop the Chile global. "We conceded cheap goals, direct balls from the goalkeeper and you do not expect that in a game like this".

As part of the same incident, Andrew Surman was sent off for collecting a second yellow card for pushing Ibrahimovic in an angry reaction to the striker's challenge on Mings.

Liverpool now face Burnley in the Premier League next Sunday before a huge clash away to Manchester City the following week.

The Chile worldwide was surprisingly on the bench for last night's 3-1 defeat to Liverpool. Arsenal hold a one-point advantage over the Reds and also have a game in hand as they bid to avenge their pulsating 4-3 defeat at the Emirates on the opening day of the Premier League season. It was absolutely exceptional; we have played and lost games, and not played well in all the games, but in this game [there were] so many bad individual performances and it's really hard to win a football game. "We did really well". We analyzed it and that wasn't enjoyable.

Caretaker manager Craig Shakespeare has openly admitted he would jump at the chance to take the job on a permanent basis and, while there has been talk that Roy Hodgson is being lined up for the position, Saturday's visit of Hull is another opportunity for him to put his case forward. There will be no final Premier League title or a first Champions League title before retiring from the sport. "It's not always going up".

"But if you would have asked me on Thursday it would have been not sure but on Friday I knew, yes we can". It's not usual to come back like this.
